President Nana Akufo-Addo has finally broken his silence on the activities by the secessionist group of the Western Togoland, in the Volta Region.
According to the president, government will deal with the offenders appropriately.
Speaking in an interview on Kumasi-based Hello FM and reported by Peacefmonline, Nana Addo stated emphatically that the country will definitely "deal with them”.
The president, however, commended the security agencies in the country for their prompt to the issue.
He also mentioned that he decided not comment publicly on the matter because he knew the matter was in the hands of very capable security personnel.
President Akufo-Addo noted that he has unflinching confidence in the security agencies to handle the case and ensure the perpetrators are brought to book.
"What is happening in the Volta Region in the time of these handful - it's just a handful of people, these secessionists - we'll deal with it. I have no doubts about it,” President Akufo-Addo said.
